Weymouth, wind surfing and a wonderful Olympic day out

Something a little different on the blog today - the Olympics are nearly over and its been an amazing time for British athletes so I wanted to share some personal photos today. We weren't lucky enough to have tickets for any of the Olympic events but that hasn't stopped us loving every minute of it and we spent a fabulous day at Weymouth watch the wind surfing (from a distance on the beach) and the sailing (an even bigger distance!!).

It was our first family visit to Weymouth, a picturesque fishing harbour town looking fabulous decked out for the Olympics.  There were many of the traditional sea side events still running such as Punch & Judy shows as well as many free sports events laid on for kids to try out - golf, table tennis and canoeing to name just a few. Jack loved trying them all out!  We made out way up to the top of the beach and sat watching the wind surfing.  We could just make out the British windsurfer Nick Dempsey on his way to a silver medal -  it was a great day and made us feel part of the Olympic spirit.
